  • Walking and climbing
    • Not only will your toddler be walking alone, but he will probably be trying to crawl or climb up the stairs.
    • He may even begin walking down the stairs by placing both feet on the same step, or he might just move from step to step while sitting on his bottom.
  • Pushing toys and squatting
    • He will have great fun pushing and pulling toys while walking will be able to squat down to pickup something.

Kicking a ball

    • He may begin trying to kick or throw a ball and open and close cupboards or lids.
    • Eating with his fingers and he may also begin using a spoon
  • Drinking from a cup with a lid
    • Though you may still be nursing, your toddler will also enjoy drinking from a cup with a lid.
    • His fine motor skills have improved to the point where he will proudly turn the pages in a book while you read to him, and will scribble using a large crayon.To help develop his hand skills, introduce some food quality play dough that he can roll, squeeze, and pat.

Social and Emotional Development: 12-18 Months
  • Your toddler is still fairly self-centered (which is different from being selfish), meaning his ability to understand the feelings and emotions of others is still developing.
  • Still only seeing personal needs
  • He will prefer to play by himself.
  • He has yet to grasp the concept of sharing so he may fight with other children and show jealousy if your focus is on another child or sibling.Might be soothed with an object that represents security
    • Even though he will want to do things on his own, he will become easily frustrated and may even have a security blanket or special toy that he will snuggle when feeling discouraged or sad.

Mimicking roles

Your toddler will love to copy you because he looks up to you and wants to do what you do. So, he may pretend to cook, play on the computer, or drive a car.

This is a great time to mimic appropriate behavior and responses because it will help him learn how to act in social situations later in life.

Resisting limitations

  • He will want to explore and try new things, so he will also resist limitations and may "disobey" you.
  • Keep in mind that he doesn't yet fully understand the purpose of boundaries.
  • Your child is not "being bad", but is simply trying to figure out how to "be himself".

  • Removing lids, drawing lines and perhaps cuttingHer fine motor skills are continuing to improve and she will be able to remove lids from containers, string large beads, and copy straight lines, crosses, or circles using a crayon or marker.She may even show some interest in cutting with child-sized scissors, but will not be able to follow lines. Just let her snip away, as it will help improve her accuracy and skill.UndressingShe might like to undress herself, especially removing her shoes or socks, but may not always be able to re-dress.Open doorsAnd, she will now be able to open doors, so this would be a good time for some child safety door knob covers.

  • Perhaps wanting to start putting on clothes aloneHe may start to dress himself, and you can encourage this by providing simple clothing such as pull-on t-shirts, elastic waist pants, and slip-on shoes. Lots of buttons and snaps and belts look stylish but they can become a great source of frustration.
  • Prefers to play alone or with an adultHe will still have trouble sharing. He will usually prefer to play alone or with a non-threatening adult than with a similarly aged child.

  • Showing signs of empathyYour child may not yet be aware of the effect his actions have on others, but he is beginning to gain an understanding that the people around him may have feelings.If another child is crying, he may show concern. Or if you seem sad, he may pat your back or crawl on your lap.Perhaps new fears ariseThis may also be a time when he develops new fears and will be cautious around people he doesn't know.Routine will be very important and he will not like any changes in schedule. He may depend even more on his security blanket or cuddly toy to help him through these challenging times.
